Seiko watches announces Hope Solo as ambassador

First published: 10-04-2012

Hope Solo has been named as the latest sports personality to become an ambassador for Seiko watches.

The goalkeeper with the US women's team has signed the deal with the Japanese watch company to promote the brand.

She will be promoting the company's Sportura range of sports watches from the autumn and will also be releasing her own limited edition timepiece. 

Solo is the latest US footballer to agree to work with the company, as Los Angeles Galaxy player Landon Donovan has also signed a deal to promote Seiko's watches.

The goalkeeper will be part of the US women's team competing at the London Olympics and the side will be looking to defend the gold medal it won during the Beijing Games.

She also became known to a wider audience recently as she appeared in the 13th series of Dancing with the Stars, where she was knocked out in the semi-final.
